While it's admittedly not being *heavily* used, I do use it for compiler and glibc builds and testing.
I don't know where people have complaints about 2.6 stability. I've had almost no problems, including on heavily used public machines. The public machines don't have this sort of uptime only because of the once-every-week-security-upgrade-reboot.
